Kalabang aka Mitchell (sometimes known as Mitch) was a finalist on Survivor: Kiribati who won the player of the season award. He later returned for Survivor: All-Stars.

A well-rounded and loyal player, Mitchell is best known for the immunity streak, secret Hidden Immunity Idol, and underhanded strategic game that propelled him to the finale despite entering the merge with a minority alliance. Mitchell upset several jurors in the process, however, walking away with only two jury votes and the runner-up position.


Name (Age): Mitchell (16)
Personal claim to fame: It's a tie between getting my head stuck in a door and destroying the emotional well-being of an annoying girl.
Inspiration in life: I don't really have one.
Hobbies: Reading, sleeping, eating, watching SURVIVOR.
Pet peeves: People who suck at life.
3 words to describe you: Sarcastic, awesome, lazy.

If you could have three things on the island, what would they be and why? 1.) A beanie or hat of some fashion because they are shady and fashionable; 2.) my Snuggie, because it'll help keep me warm and Snuggies are awesome; 3.) my dignity, because there is a 99% chance I will lose it at some point in the game.

SURVIVOR contestant you are most like: I think I'm a strange combination of Jonathan Penner, Malcolm Freberg, and John Cochran.

Reason for being on SURVIVOR: It's a personal challenge. I think I have the ability to win the game, and now it's time to put my money where my mouth is. Plus, it's my favorite show. I'm honored to be part of the SURVIVOR family.

Why you think you’ll “survive” SURVIVOR: I think I'll survive because I know it's a game, so I can treat it like a game. I have nothing to worry about other than getting voted out.
Why you think you will be the sole SURVIVOR: I can charm my way to the top and I can manipulate my way to the end. While I might fall short physically, I am a beacon of mental and social strengths. If I can utilize my strengths to make up for my weaknesses, and if I don't come off as too threatening, I can definitely win this game.
